Anyone catch the crazy swerve to not kill the camera person right at the end?

It all seems to be staged (durrrrrrr)

too bad he didnt lose his thumbs with them wrapped around the wheel like that. Thought it was common/basic knowledge to keep your thumbs out or the inside of the wheel. and I dont think anyone would have said shit about the helmet if no one in the video worn one...

I wouldnt have, if the driver was worried about himself enough to put a helmet on the pasenger should have also. If I were going to drive 60mph through the desert I would definatly put a helmet on, driver or passenger.



I never wear a helmet when I wheel but then again my head is harder than my laptop .

Why wasnt that prerunning? What makes a prerunner?

You seem to be very confused. A bone stock AMC Eagle can be a prerunner if you want........

Plenty of people explained how shit happens and he doesn't have control of everything, me included again.....as this video proves. Thankfully at that time no one was hurt.......no idea of your products, may be the best, may not.......but the way you acted at a park full of people was less then impressive.
Was this in California at KOH?

The crash wasn't staged. The camera man didn't mean to get so close to the jump.

Sorry I did not know till now that this happened. I just talked to the other employee (Dennis) that was there on this. Your right, he should not of acted like that or driven the JK around people like that. Sounds like he got into some serious trouble about it.

I was talking about the conversation, its one thing to pre plan a discussion. But it all apears to be so rehersed that there is no emotion behind the statements made. Makes the whole conversation very hard to listen too.



As far as the camera man goes, I thought it was funny. kinda obvious he was a little to agressive, I found it entertaining.

Good point on the conversation, I will bring that up with the guys.

I like the little girl scream at the end when the camera man runs off.

I thought those faces looked framilliar.....

I loved the last 30 seconds of the vid when he finally got the seat-belt unclipped!

Yes- a little rough driving for a vehicle without a true cage- and I'm glad no one got hurt!

Yes, sure, a bone stock AMC eagle could be a pre-runner, but in the true sense of desert racing and actual pre-running that jeep is nothing more than a lifted jeep with bigger tires.

Most prerunners are not "lifted"
